VPN for Kodi
Your IP Address: 2602:304:cf01:4a50:a91c:c5da:cbae:2009 is visible to the public. You are taking risk! As a kodi user, we used to watch tv shows, movies, live streaming videos, PPV and much more. Watching these from your own IP address is totally risky. Also, few kodi add-ons are geo-restricted and can't be accessed by all the users. In order to get rid of such issues, a Kodi VPN is always recommended. Using a VPN will unlock geo-blocked content, keep you anonymous online and watch without buffering!

Exodus errors and fix guide

1.Exodus Kodi not working

  • One of the main reason for this issues is that you may be using the older versions of Kodi. It is advised that you must update to the latest version of Kodi for the proper working of your addons and media library. If you are using Kodi version 14.2+ or below, there are possibilities that exodus may not run on your Kodi. You can update to the latest version Krypton 17.4. You can download the latest version from the official Kodi website.
  • Another main cause for this issue is you may be running an older version of Exodus addon. Even though you run the latest version of Kodi, running the old addon version will also raise the issue. So, it is necessary that you run the latest version of exodus addon. You can update the addon by clicking on update button on the addon description page of Exodus.
  • Sometimes, the addon may crash without any prior intimation or error message. This case arises due to improper installation of your Kodi. So it is better to Uninstall Kodi and Reinstall Kodi. After reinstalling Kodi install Exodus addon again.
  • To the existing users who have installed Exodus from Tvaddons, if Exodus is not working then you have to uninstall Exodus and install Exodus fresh following any one of the above methods.

2.No stream available issue

This is one of the widely reported issues. First, we must understand that Exodus addon does not store any videos or data. The list of movies and TV shows they offer are provided from the API key of a service like Trakt, IMDB or themoviedb.  Exodus collects the list of movies and Tv shows from these sites and displays it to us. And when we click on it will show us the links to these videos from the sources loaded already within the addon. It only provides us links to stream the videos. Add-ons like Exodus, SALTs, and Covenant simply scan the streaming websites loaded into them for available links. If none of these websites have working links to load, you will get the “No stream available” error

The main cause for this issue is that your IP may be blocked certain contents by your Internet Service Provider(ISP). Streaming certain movies and Tv shows via Kodi is considered illegal. So, your ISP may be monitoring your activities and may block you from streaming certain contents. The only way to overcome this issue is by using a VPN. Virtual Private Network will hide the contents you stream from your ISP, so you can stream everything you wish.

3.Search not working

First of all, check, if the search works on other kodi addons. If not, then Exodus is the victim. One of the methods is to search with the author name instead of the movie name. This will produce results in certain cases. In such cases, the normal search function will get back to action with the update. Another main reason for this error is trakt dysfunctionality. Trakt.tv is the source from where the Exodus acquires search results. If trakt.tv does not work, it is impossible for exodus to fetch the result.

4.Couldn’t connect to repository error

The main reason for this error is due to the fall down of giant tvaddons.org. You may have installed exodus from tvaddons.org. But tvaddons has gone down recently. So, you may face this error. The remedy is that you need to install the addon from some other source.

Exodus could not connect to repository error may occur if you are entering the wrong path for the source file. The path for the source file is http://cypher-media.com/repo. If you make any mistakes when typing this, it will lead to the mentioned error. Placing period, forward slash, letters either in uppercase or lowercase must be typed exactly as provided in the guide. Try to check again after typing it. Sometimes if you save the different repositories using the same name, will also lead to error. So make sure you do not make these two mistakes while installing the repository.

5.Slow loading

If videos taking forever to buffer when you watch them on Kodi, there are two main root causes that you should investigate first.  The biggest reason for video loading problems is Kodi’s default cache settings. One of the main cause for buffering and poor functioning of the exodus is that the unwanted storage of cache files and packages. This is the main reason which causes the error while installing or updating an addon. You can overcome this by clearing cache files, deleting thumbnails and packages. It is simple to execute because the addon itself contains the tools to execute them.

Open Exodus addon, go to Tools. Here you can find Exodus Clear providers and Exodus Clear cahe. Click on them to clear the providers and cache respectively which slows down the performance.

6.Showing old movies only

If you see only movies from a certain period like 2000 and earlier, then you may have set your system time and date settings incorrectly. This is a major problem for Kodi TV box users, but it can also affect other devices such as Windows, Android IoS and other supported devices. If that’s your problem, go to your device settings and update the time and date to your present date and time. This will vary, depending on which type of device you’re using to run Kodi.

Additional features of Exodus kodi addon

Exodus does support trakt.tv and IMDB services. These services will keep track of you watching history like which episode of a series you watched recently and the mvies you have watched. They will give you an update when new movies and Tv shows are released. This is one of the best features that are not supported by other addons. It is useful too.
